Ragged Angel for 2 challenges.....

Hello everyone: How is your Summer going? I hope you are enjoying the warm temperatures because they wont last, for us up here in the Northern states, the cold months outlast the warm.
But anyway, I'm participating in two challenges with this card, Merry Monday with a theme of Pastels and the Holiday/Winter theme challenge over at LiveLoveCards , which will run the entire month of August. Here is my card.
This little Ragged Angel  is from Penny Black, the expression on her sweet face is of pure bliss. I struggled a bit with the layout for this card, the image is 4x4 inches so it was going to take a good portion of the surface of my card base so, I decided to snip it out and just put a white panel as the background embossed with an old Sizzix embossing folder that looks like snow falling.
I colored this sweet little Angel with my SU markers and the Aqua Painter then, sprinkled some glitter on the bottom, I'm sorry it's not showing in this picture, maybe in this one you can see the sparkle at her feet. 
This picture was taken with the flash, the other one without.
So there you have it, I hope you like it. I want to thank you for visiting my blog, please leave me a comment or a question or both, I read all of them and they always make me so happy.
 
 Till next time, keep on stamping.
                                                                         Maria.

Ink: Stazon Jet Black, SU markers in Perfect Plumb, Pumpkin Pie, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Wile Wasabi, Certainly Celery and Soft Suede.
